Rick Wakeman and the English Rock Ensemble: No Earthly Connection (A&M)****

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 17 April 1976

HERE WE are again and I'm not at all sure that reviewing an album twice is a good idea even if first time round was on a once-over studio preview. However, the comforting thing about No Earthly Connection is that it sounds almost as good, as lively and intriguing in the cupboard I call home as it did in the imposing surrounding of the Chateau de Herouville.
